Healthy Eating for Monday, Jan. 31st.

We’re one month into the new year.  Many folks out there made a resolution to eat better, and I am wondering how it’s going. Feel free to comment and let me know!

My healthy eating tip today is to ignore the USDA food pyramid. Seriously, this thing is a travesty calling itself nutrition. What should you do instead? Eat real food. It’s difficult to go wrong eating fresh vegetables, unprocessed grains, and lean proteins. The “new” USDA guidelines–while, I suppose, an improvement in that they suggest cutting sugars and salt–are not much better than the old. Ketchup is still not a vegetable, and fruit loops will never be an appropriate breakfast for you or your children.

Check in tomorrow for On the Menu! See what we’re eating this week, and why.
